Improve Farm Security with Cameras Without Wifi

          Improve Farm Security with Cameras Without Wifi



There are security cameras that work without wifi. If you are looking for a security camera that does not require wifi, research the specific model to ensure that it will meet your needs. 

The most important thing to do is make sure there is 4G coverage at the location you are considering adding a camera. After that, maybe it’s the solar capacity of the site. 

If it’s under a tree, you will likely run out of power in the medium term. The need for farm security cameras without wifi is a pressing problem. 

The lack of wifi makes the camera difficult to use and monitor the footage.

Don’t worry, we are here to help!

 

What type of security do you need?

 

There are many types of security that you may need, depending on your situation. Some common types of security include 24/7 video surveillance with a video management system, AI motion alerts and low power options.

For farms, we recommend 24/7 options. You can choose LS VISION’s 5mp 30x optical zoom 4g solar camera that supports Onvif and NVR connection. It also can support mobile app and computer software monitoring. The NVR and the camera will automatically connect on its proprietary network and start to communicate with each other without Internet access (without connecting to your router).

Bandwidth usage: The more internet of things (IoT) devices you add to your network, the more bandwidth it uses, slowing down your internet.

Power:  Solar-powered cameras are great options if you won’t be around much.

Installation: Plonk and go! Most 4G cameras are very simple to install, like LS VISION’s solar cameras, installation can be quite simple. All you need to do is to put the camera up, and it will start working. Some cameras that don’t require wifi can be set up in minutes without any tools or cords. Often battery is included so you don’t need external power.

However, be weary of power consumption and if you are going solar, these can be a little heavy. Make sure you are safely on a ladder or cherry picker before installing the camera.

Location: If you don’t have wifi and need a security camera that doesn’t need an external router, the best option would be a camera that uses 4G or LTE. These cameras will use the cellular network to send footage and alerts.

Storage: Cameras that don’t require wifi will often have their own storage, so you don’t have to worry about losing footage if the internet goes out. This storage can come in the form of a micro SD card, or cloud storage.

No wifi needed: An outdoor 4g solar security camera can be a good option if you don’t have wifi. It has a built-in rechargeable battery, so you can place it wherever you need to without worrying about cords.

Remote Viewing: Once you don’t need remote viewing on mobile phones, tablets or computers, which means the recording video doesn’t need to be sent over the network, you don’t need an Internet connection at all to use a wireless WiFi security camera or a wired IP camera. Just check all the recording footage videos from mobile app directly.

 

Cameras That Don’t Need Wifi

There are a few security cameras on the market that do not require wifi. These cameras typically use a cellular data connection to send footage to a secure server. This can be a good option if you do not have wifi or do not want to use the wifi network for security camera footage.

 

Are Security Cameras Without Wifi Harder to Install?

Security cameras without wifi can be less difficult to install as they don’t need to be connected to wifi, as they generally require a 4G connection via a sim card. However, several security cameras can be powered by a battery and do not require a wifi connection.

 

Can I Access the Camera with My Mobile Phone Data Network?

 

Some security cameras can be accessed remotely using your mobile phone data network, while others cannot. Before purchasing a security camera, be sure to check whether or not it is compatible with your mobile phone data network. Some international modems options will work on most telcos around the world but its worth checking before you buy.

 

No Wifi and No Electricity? Is any Security Camera Available?

There are security cameras that do not require wifi or electricity. For example, LS VISION Home Security Camera System requires no wifi and no electricity. It runs on lithium batteries, which can last up to two years. 4G uses a more modern LiPo rechargeable and will run indefinitely with the optional solar panel.

 

No Wifi and No Cellular? Are any Security Camera Options to Store Data Onsite Without Subscription Fees?

You can use a security camera system that doesn’t require wifi or cellular data. However, you will need to have a way to store the footage on-site. This often uses an SD card on the camera as a queuing system. The issue is that you will have to head out to the camera to collect the footage, and you will also not get any live notifications if there is a motion onsite. We recommend a non-wifi camera for locations like farms.
